Guidance and support on shielding




If you have Coronavirus symptoms, you should register for a test immediately as part of the Test and Protect programme.

Exercise and meeting others

In line with Phase 1 of the transition out of lockdown, you can now meet others outside while maintaining physical distancing at all times. 




Parks and outdoor spaces

Phase 1 allows greater use of parks and outdoor spaces, but you do need to be aware of the restrictions still in place to keep everyone safe.
